WRs – Jordy Nelson, Randall Cobb, Davante Adams
Nelson – 4 catches, 109 yards, 1 TD; 16.90 fantasy points
Cobb – 10 catches, 129 yards; 12.90 fantasy points
Adams – 2 catches, 13 yards, 1 TD; 7.30 fantasy points
Each week, we see the a lot of the same things happen from these guys: Nelson beats weak coverage deep, Cobb makes great catches all around the field, and Green Bay usually wins.
It’s no wonder they are both potential Pro Bowlers this year; they just keep making plays every week and giving defenses fits. It should be no different this week. Expect big plays and good production from both guys.
Adams has been less of an impact player than those two obviously, but still has made his mark across multiple games this year, both in reality and fantasy. In five of the past six games, he has reached at least seven fantasy points.
That isn’t a large amount, but it does show consistency, which is a good quality in the realms of fantasy and reality. In any given week, I’d say seven points is a decent output to bank on if you need it.
For this week, I think he might not see the ball often; since the bye, Green Bay has done more work with using the tight ends, which has cut into the potential production that Adams could otherwise put up. Because of that, he’s very TD dependent in terms of fantasy impact right now. Seeing as he hasn’t caught one in a road game yet, it’ll be a good bet to stay away from him on this one.
Keep an eye on him though. If he and the playcalling prove me wrong, then he could be a nice reliable option to look to as the fantasy season winds down.
Nelson – 5 catches, 100 yards, 1 TD; 16 fantasy points
Cobb – 8 catches, 70 yards, 1 TD; 13 fantasy points
Adams – 1 catch, 10 yards; 1 fantasy point
Verdict: Must-Start (Nelson, Cobb); Bench (Adams)
